Can we just accept at this point that maybe there shouldn’t a reboot of The Crow? The comic book was previously adapted in 1994, and follows a young rock musician who comes back to avenge his and fiancée’s murder. This requires him to dress like a goth for some reason. The reboot has burned through the following directors: Stephen Norrington, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and F. Javier Gutierrez; yesterday Corin Hardy stepped into the director’s chair, and we’ll see how long he lasts. As for the lead role, it had Bradley Cooper at one point, but he dropped out, and they courted Channing Tatum, Mark Wahlberg, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, and Alexander Skarsgard before settling on Luke Evans well over a year go.
Except now it looks like Evans may be leaving the project. Hit the jump for more.
